Yeah I love it, I have pitched it to the estranged sopuse, when I ask her what she thought, she said "pretty boat". Then I ask what she thought about selling or refinancing the house to sell and pay off upon her retirement
, she said , "pretty boat".
We have reconciled, though she has not moved home yet. She has 2 months left on her lease
and living alone for the first time in 59 years of life so now that we have worked it out, this is like summer camp, I guess. After 36 years of marriage I suppose there is no great hurry. Besides, I think she likes the wooing, courting, dating and watching me sweat, 36 +- years later, AGAIN. Sigh, Women!
That Beebe has a lot of appeal too, with sweat equity it could be one hell of a lot of boat for the $. I would want the most critical, skilled and experienced surveyor
in the free world to write it up b4 comitting to it though. I guess really I would want that on the Navy
boat too. George Buehler would likely do the west coast navy
boat, but I doubt, nor could I afford him for the east coast
The main concern of both of those ships is the resale value, even if put in bristol yacht condition and kept that way. Wood boats make bankers nervous so selling might be a concern in 10 years. Any thoughts on that out there?
Me and the dogs
are living a nice quite, serene life. Just as you can have on a boat in between times of concern, adventure and sheer terror. Boat living should be better than just worrying about the health
of the caladiums, the greeness of the san augustine and the health
of the ferns. I guess I am ready for a new set of worries.
